Episode 378: Sämisch versus Nimzowitsch


Never leave your back undefended. Basic rule of combat.

Of course this means you can easily back yourself into a corner. Figuratively, if not also literally.

Padmé: A stalemate! We'll see who blinks first.
Obi-Wan: Yes... Us, or the robots that don't eat or sleep.
Padmé: Yeah! We...
Padmé: Hmm.
Mace Windu: {aside} I'll never kill again.
